The Foodworks Restaurant is the AA Rosette-awarded eatery of the 4-star Lancaster House Hotel, offering a fantastic blend of traditional and contemporary recipes. Leading on from the hotel lounge with its inviting open fires, the restaurant offers a chic dining setting that is children-friendly.
Head Chef Damien Ng showcases the very best in Lancashire produce on the Foodworks Restaurant menu, and adds inventive tweaks to traditional local recipes. The fish and chips are coated in Lancaster Brewery blonde beer batter, while a portobello mushroom stack has perfectly matured Lancashire cheese combined with broccoli pesto. There is also an extensive children's menu with numerous healthy options.
Desserts at The Foodworks Restaurant Lancaster are wonderfully decadent, and continue the local theme: ice cream comes from Wallings of Cockerham, there is homemade Lancashire ginger parkin with rich toffee sauce, and also a cheeseboard of local varieties to choose from, as well as a large wine list.
Combining style with reassuring tradition, The Foodworks Restaurant is adjacent to Lancaster University, and a 19-minute drive from Lancaster Rail Station.

No really great value for money
25 December 2019
When we arrived our booking had not been processed so we were asked to sit in reception. The restaurant manager then came to us and advised that we could not be seated in the restaurant, could we sit in the bar. This we did. We were given menus, given a cost of £60 per head and left to browse. When we placed the order we expected champagne and canapes, only the champagne arrived. The starter was tasty but small. The sorbet was lovely. The main course of Beef arrived and we had to go to the bar to request suitable knives; no horseradish was offered. We had to request our dessert and tea/coffee. We had to wait an excessive amount of time between some of the courses and we felt forgotten at times. We missed out on the xmas atmosphere in the restaurant and were privy to some petty disagreements in the bar between other patrons. When we went to pay the price suddenly went up to £70 per head; no breakdown was available on the printed bill we asked for. I could not recommend the restaurant as I was not seated in there - service may be better where you can be seen ….

Dinner was ok and the service was fast. But they took a while to search for the PO on their system and finally they let us go. The guest almost missed his train as I was dropping him to the station.

Booking was very easy to do. Staff were friendly and attentive. Meals were reasonable. Sardine starter a bit pink, pork steak over cooked, caeser salad didn’t have a lot of dressing on it. Otherwise enjoyable.

Fresh Fleetwood cod and chips which were delicious and good value. The duck was cooked to my liking. We enjoyed the ice creams choices. The staff were pleasant and efficient, so all in all a good experience.
